Bus Memory Lane
 
 
Welcome to our new Bus Memory Lane web page. The purpose of this new web page is not to remind you of the unpleasant rides on the old rickety buses of the past but to revitalize the collection of buses that were used over the years. Take your time to admire the collection of vintage buses as you would for vintage cars.

Get an insight into the different models of public buses that had plied the roads of Singapore during the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and into the new century.

  SBS Transit Launches New Single-Deck Buses, Scores Many Firsts
It is Singapore's most environmentally friendly public bus. It is also the friendliest to the elderly and disabled - being able to ferry two wheelchair-bound passengers at any one time. And to top it all off, it is also one of the safest - boasting an advanced braking system which helps to minimise on-board accidents.
SBS Transit's newest buses were designed to not only cater to the needs of a broader spectrum of commuters but also to do its part for the environment.
